Letter to Senator Cardin on Closing the FOIA Loophole on Private Prisons

On June 12, 2015, 20 organizations, including Campaign for Accountability, wrote to Senator Ben Cardin urging him to introduce legislation that would require federal government agencies to comply with FOIA requests relating to non-federal prisons, jails, or detention facilities that detain or incarcerate people for the federal government, in the same way that those agencies must comply with such requests relating to federally run facilities.
